Kellogg's Cereal Box Dream #36 - Yes, Chicago Loved Him

Bill Buckner had a great career with the Cubs.  Although he's remembered from the Red Sox and the Dodgers, he played more games with the Cubs (974) than the Dodgers (773) and Red Sox (528).  He hit .289 for his career with an even .300 average from his days with the Cubs.  He won an NL batting title in 1980.





1983 Kellogg's Bill Buckner #59 



1978 Rating                    -- 8  comment -- he was certainly a fan favorite with the Cubs.  Why?                                                     He hustled and played the way we'd hope everyone would.  

2017 Rating                    -- 6 comment --  like lots of the players, the mentality is now star or                                                        common.  The in-betweens are now commons.   At least he's a Cub.
